The UCAS Personal Statement matters, as it provides students with their best opportunity to impress University Admissions Staff in a very positive way. Tusitala will edit and revise your UCAS Personal Statement, so you can make an excellent and individual impact on the Universities of your choice. Tusitala will first discuss your aims and objectives in terms of Higher Education and will then revise your Statement to meet your personal requirements.
This detailed bespoke treatment will involve both a discussion of your aims and objectives as well as the refining and editing of the statement, all for just £25/hour or £60 beginning to end with revisions.

We have had excellent success with Oxbridge applications, many Russell group Universities and with PGCE applications too.
Before Tusitala’s UCAS Coaching
I wish to study English at University as I love the subject with a passion. I have always read extensively and have found A level Studies both exciting and stimulating. The thought of spending three years at University reading books from all over the world seems ideal and fun.I am a very active member of my Tutor groups at school and always give of my best to discussion and independent study.
My favourite writer on the A level course this course has been Shakespeare and this is because I find the character of hamlet really fascinating and interesting. I know that at University I will have the opportunity to study lots of Shakespeare and this is very challenging! I read lots of texts myself and I have really found Zadie Smith and Charles Dickens interesting in all sorts of ways. I also read thrillers and these are good alternatives to my A level set texts. I am Captain of the Girls’ football team at school and also play lots of other team sports enthusiastically. These include: netball, lacrosse and hockey. I work part time in a shoe shop and this has helped me understand the value of money and hard work. I also help People with disabilities and I find this very worthwhile.
After Tusitala’s UCAS Coaching
The Spanish director Almodovar noted that in any film screenplay, ‘without being aware of it, I find myself telling them about tones, hidden intentions and mysterious parallelisms.’ My A level studies have made me aware of the rich complexities of language and the challenging linguistic processes by which we come to understand one another. I intend to pursue a degree in English so that I can explore in far great depth, these ‘hidden’ nuances in writing which often so govern our real lives.
Almodovar’s point about the ‘hidden intentions’ of language has been illustrated in my English Course where the innate ambiguity and instability of expression has proved revelatory to me. I have independently elected to read Zadie Smith and Dickens and such narratives have expanded my understanding of both Contemporary and ‘Classic’ literature.
As a student at A level I have enjoyed both the excitement of group debates and the intellectual freedom of pursuing my own academic interests. I have excellent initiative and respond effectively both to the exigencies of research and more prescriptive study skills. I am ambitious to gain a very good degree and wish to develop a sophisticated level of understanding in this subject.
I have enrolled on several WEA Courses at Easter in order to improve my appreciation of literature, and am sure my confidence will benefit from this investment. I am also to visit Stratford at Easter and look forward to immersing myself in Measure for Measure in a very intensive way!
I read voraciously and enjoy both ‘genre’ fiction as well as the more obviously literary writers. The symbolic play on the idea of ‘the return’ in Volver reminded me of Hamlet and the unfinished nature of the past. It is through recognising links like these that I have gained enormous pleasure in my literary studies. My favourite writer is Ian Rankin and I have read all his recent novels!
Throughout my school life I have shown myself to be reliable and a compassionate leader. I have worked as a volunteer with Adults with learning Disabilities and helped organise the Annual Excursion to Blackpool for Pensioners.
I have represented my school in a variety of sports including netball, lacrosse and am Captain of the Girls’ Football team at my school. I have also represented my school at county level in chess!
My part time job of two years has expanded my understanding of the work ethos and I am far more confident and self-assured as a result of working so regularly with the public.
